Moral Compass Project

What significance could a ‘moral compass’ have for our human knowledge and experience of the ‘good’? How does a transcendent ‘Good’ relate to ‘good’ that people can discover and experience by themselves? Can we speak meaningfully about the ‘good’ as something that precedes our human understanding of morality, while at the same time needing to be discovered anew in new situations?

About the project

In 2018, the PThU launched the Moral Compass Project. The project explores how one can meaningfully think about a ‘moral compass’ that transcends our personal preferences in a situation of moral pluralism.
